YoCycle Updates & Give Away

Important Update

The Basics workshop has evolved into a different class, now called Tips & Tricks,  Saturday July 2nd from 10am-1pm.

Class begins in a lovely shelter*, point “c” on the map, along the I-90 bike trail where we will learn a few tips for maintaining  your body and your bike. Then we will hop on our bicycles and cross the I-90 bridge to another park on Mercer Island, point “b” on the map. At the second location we will have a full yoga class and learn more bike tricks. The workshop, yoga and ride are $39 if you pre-register before the day. We also are having a give away of a Mechanic’s Tool Bag from our wonderful sponsors & friends at Swift Industries for the first 2 folks to register for the Tips & Tricks class.

Mechanic Bags from Swift Industries

*Does anyone know the name of the Gazebo there? I want to know more about it.

We will also be giving away 4 mechanic bags to people who register for The Commuter Class on Saturday July 25th at 10am!

The Commuter Class features a conversation with a bike lawyer to educate commuters about cyclists’ rights and responsibilities. Then during our ride we will practice stoplight yoga and maybe even drawbridge yoga. Finally we will practice roadside repair. Workshop is $39, ride route will be announced after you register.

Organizer pockets on the inside

Also, I want to mention a wonderful project that Swift Industries is putting together called Tough & Tender, a literary and photographic project to celebrate women’s experience of the bicycle. Women (as defined by the individual to be female bodied and/or female identified) can submit a self-portrait with your bicycle and write 500 words. Submissions are due by July 30th. You are also entered to win 15% off your next Swift Industries order. Learn more here.

Grab your sweetie and head to Yoga 4 Two Valentine’s Weekend

Valentine’s day is approaching. Celebrate it with your sweetie or BFF by heading over to the Fremont Abbey on Feb 13th at 1:30-3pm for Yoga 4 Two.

The class will feature poses where you work with your partner to find opening and relaxation in the body. We will also play with balance and breath. I will teach you how to give your partner delightful adjustments that will make them melt. This is an all levels class, especially welcoming to those new to yoga.

Sliding scale donation, suggested $20 per pair

After class there is no need to even leave Fremont! You can always head to Paseo and grab the most delicious sandwich ever (and/or celebrate their return after a long winter break). Then stick around because the Fremont Abbey is also holding Round {57}: Valentine Edition, an evening bursting with talented musicians, artists and poets.  An event surely not to be missed!
